This is the roof that gave me the inspiration for our house.

So tired but there is progress. Fresh pictures hot of the press. Almost half the roof panels are up. First impressions are good. Today in the sun roof hot to touch but beautiful and cool underneath.

I haven't been this excited about pictures since I found my dad's playboy magazine at 9 yrs old.thanks

I am still around. The 8 meter wide folding doors are installed and look magnificent. The whole house is to be proud of. Still building it as we save money. No I am not on the Dole and nobody is givi

1 + 2 +3 mix.

 

??

 

EDIT: 1 water : 2 cement : 3 sand.

 

Just found it. I take it these are "parts"? 

 

1 part water

2 parts cement

3 parts sand

 

How about when pouring concrete in a slab and adding rock to it? How much rock should be added to it, in comparison?

No. This is 1-2-3 mix. The water isn't included in the numbers.

 

1 Part Portland Cement

2 Parts Medium to Coarse Sand

3 Parts Gravel or Rock

 

How much water goes in is dependent on the application, but the strongest concrete will have just enough water to bind the mix. Runny concrete is NOT your friend if you want a permanent structure. You can also put in additives to slow drying time, to quicken drying time, to increase strength, to waterproof the finished product, to color, and to do other things. However, none of the additives are included in the mix numbers either.

Thank you  for answering the question.

Yes you can swap moulds but I only have the 4 inch moulds. But to tell you the truth i never even looked how they come out.

The  motor spins a unbalanced shaft that vibrates the table. The blocks after vibrating get stuck quite tight in the machineithe foot pedal breaks that after which the hand lever pushes them out the rest of the way. Yes it is for a chute.

The  neatness of the blocks depends on the operator. My operator is fussy but i dont mind.

I am loading a clip of him using it on Google+ but it is slow. Will give details how to view it later.

Pic 2 is of master bedroom and bathroom taking shape

Pic 3 is of interlocking blocks to show strength they did not know how to do this at the start but are getting quite good at it now.

Well we are coming to the end of the roof project and I am going back to Australia to be with my loving wife and children. I have been missing them so very much. I hope to remember a picture of the installed ridge capping before I go back. Thanks for your interest and advice. Now the walls need finishing before glass installation. The glass quote came close to 300k but that is for a lot of glass. It is amazing the change in 7 weeks. Our building site now is resembling a house. There is still a lot of work to be done but even now I am proud of our achievement. Maybe I will start a new blog about the complete build if there is interest? Rik
